Movie Review: “Man of Steel”

What if Lena Dunham Had Written: Game of Thrones?

Happy April Fools Day, everyone!  We thought we’d give Game of Thrones fans a day off this year from the trauma we put them through on this day in 2013.  Here’s a fun post from that should get a few laughs without causing a heart attack.  See you next year!

VICE: Season Two Episode 3 Review

  Overview: Cities like Detroit and Cleveland are at the forefront of a new phenomenon: scrapping. People left behind are literally ripping apart old schools, houses, hospitals and factories for raw materials to hawk to local scrap yards for cash. Scrap metal is one of the United States’ biggest exports, with billions of dollars’ worth traveling to China every year, where it’s invested in their infrastructure.
